Cottage









Cook's Cottage, Melbourne.
Great herringbone masonry and swirly tiles. 
Dying to make my own tiles soonish. 
Plans to cut the clay from the ground and raku-fire. 



Mudbrick amazingness, China. Note how each vault is different. The bricolage vs. engineered approach to architecture seems to be a universal feature of adobe/ mudbrick building. 



Corb. in his Cab. 
Particularly amused by distinctly Un-Modernist vase/carnations/tablecloth.
A woman's touch. (Just not Eileen Gray's...)
And tatty paintings just pinned to lining- I like them too.
Seems lively and livable...
